Snead declares for NFL draft

As of late this morning, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt said that his quarterback, Jevan Snead, was leaning toward leaving school early.

This afternoon, that lean has turned into a full-blown leap.

In a release issued through the school, Snead announced that he was making himself available for the 2010 NFL draft.

“After much prayer and deliberation, I have decided to forego my final year at Ole Miss and enter the NFL Draft,” Snead said in the statement. “The fans, coaches and my teammates have been unbelievable and I want to thank them for an incredible experience.

“In the end, I had to do what is best for me and my family. Having finished my degree, I look forward to the challenge and hard work that comes with pursuing my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL.”

In leading the Rebels to back-to-back 9-4 seasons, Snead completed just over 55% of his passes and threw 33 interceptions. He also threw 46 touchdowns and 5,394 yards.
